In the final trailer for Deadpool 2, we get introduced to the X-Force team, which includes Bedlam, Domino, Shatterstar, and a surprise addition: Peter W. Peter isn’t extraordinary, and he doesn’t possess otherworldly insight. In fact, he’s just a normal guy who wears Skechers Shape Ups and responded to an ad.
But, damn, is he funny. Turns out, the minds behind Peter are very committed to the new character. So committed, in fact, that he has his own Twitter account, which has been around for about a month.
Spent the afternoon practicing our X-Forcing. These guys are really good. REALLY good. Need to work on my cardio. pic.twitter.com/Huj4nfwOUD— Peter W. (@PeterW_1974) April 19, 2018
Already at nearly 30k followers, the account portrays Peter as an enthusiastic beekeeper who loves sports and grilling on his deck. Clearly, he has no damn clue what he’s getting himself into.
In addition to his life as a beekeeper, Peter enjoys ‘90s sitcoms, the occasional bee joke, and staying drug free. He also has a wife who may or may not be getting chummy with her personal trainer, Gus.
“I’ve never ‘blazed’ marijuana,” Peter Tweeted to Sylvester Stallone. “Family and friends are my hit of drugs.”
It’s going to be hilarious to see how Peter interacts with Deadpool, otherwise known as the Merc With a Mouth, especially since Peter doesn’t like when people curse. “Please don’t say that word again, “Peter Tweets at someone who says the word “dildo.”
“I’m going to smile a thousand times today!” Peter said on April 7.
It’s pretty much a forgone conclusion: Peter is going to die a horrible death in Deadpool 2. When he’s gone, we’ll always remember him for his great fashion sense and love of underwater lava.
I appreciate all the attention. But I’m just an honest guy, looking for work in a contracting economy. #XForce— Peter W. (@PeterW_1974) April 19, 2018
